Memorandum for Robert C. McFarlane
From: Peter R. Sommer
Reply to Mrs. Thatcher on New Delhi Commonwealth Communique
Mrs. Thatcher wrote the President at the end of November (Tab B) both to give him background on the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in New Delhi and to explain the Conference’s Communiqué.
Our recommended reply (Tab A), which is based on a State draft, expresses understanding for the Communiqué’s language. Speechwriters have cleared the text. A memorandum to the President is at Tab I.
That you sign the memorandum at Tab I forwarding for the President’s signature a reply to Mrs. Thatcher.
